The new operating system from Google has just hit the first smartphones. Currently Android 10 is now available on the Pixel series devices. Soon it will go to other gadgets.
Android 10, which until now was only available to beta test participants, has just been released into the official distribution. Starting from Tuesday, the system is available to users of Pixel smartphones. However, Google announced that it is working intensively with its partners, so that this year the system will debut on devices from other manufacturers – Samsung, LG and Motorola.
Android 10. What’s new?
The most noticeable change is the name itself. Previous versions of the system had their code names, which referred to the English names of sweets. So we had Android Donut, Kit-Kat , Oreo, Ice Cream Sandwich and Marshmallow. Google has abandoned these code names (at least in marketing communications). The new Android is simply Android 10. That’s all.
Of course, this is not the end of the changes. “Ten” introduces, among others a new gesture system, dark mode, as well as the “Live Caption” function that allows you to generate subtitles in real time for movies and audio recordings. The latter function will be available for some time only for Pixel smartphones.
The most important change, however, concerns the issue of security. This will not be noticed by most users. The “Project Mainline” tool built into the system will allow you to share critical security updates directly in the Play Store. Until now, such updates were made available to manufacturers and operators, and only later went to system users.
